Finally the sale completed on my house in Blackburn last August but my buyer keeps calling me to say his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Post completion of your disposal your solicitor is obliged to forward the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been discharged to the purchasers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities specific conveyancing in Blackburn.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Skipton. Blackburn conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Skipton?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Skipton completed the valuation? Have you advised Skipton as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Skipton conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Blackburn. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Blackburn conveyancing practitioner is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Blackburn. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
